BT has signed two multimillion euro deals to both supply and acquire managed services.

First, the UK-based operator’s global services division has won a five-year contract to provide all of Anglo American’s networking requirements at several hundred locations around the world.

Bas Burger, president of global commerce at BT global services, said the deal reflected how, in the current economy, customers are “driving for leaner production processes, optimised supply chain operations, accelerated rate of innovation and improved collaboration with suppliers and customers on a global scale”.

BT will use ethernet, MPLS, satellite and microwave access to link the mining firm’s operations in 15 countries.

The deal includes the supply of managed phone, web and video conferencing at 130 sites plus six fully managed telepresence solutions at four major sites.

Second, BT has renewed its contract with back office vendor Subex for the supply of the latter’s Revenue Operations Centre.

India-based Subex said its solution will monitor and control the entire revenue chain to identify risks to profitability, margins and customer satisfaction.

The deal is a “multimillion dollar framework contract” that will be rolled out across BT’s domestic and international interconnect billing and settlements, fraud management, revenue assurance and event integrity domains.
